The Mexican Foreign Office gave
prompt wainiig to the Chiapas State
officials to send Barillas back to Tonala
as soon as the news came that he had
left this city, where he had been quietly
sojourning since leaving San Francisco.
Barillas and Castillo went down to the
the border disguised a« Yankee land
prospectors, but had previously, through
other parties, arranged a base of opera-
tions on the Mexican side opposite Ocos.

They had sent to mining men there
arms boxed as mining machinery and had
assembled men in their confidence at
that and other points. The movement
was superbly organized, as is seen by
the participation of Salvador and the.
promised aid of Nicaragua. Cabrera had
an inkling that trouble was brewing on
the Salvador frontier, but had no sus-
picion of invasion from other points. He
had garrisoned 40(>0 troops at Guatemala
City, but it was reported today at Oeos
that his generals are mostly disaffected
and will surrender to Barillas on his ap-
nea ranee. The latter wishes to avoid
bloodshed as far as possible.
Barillas is about GO years of age and a
strong and resolute soldier. He became
Provisional President of Guatemala in
April, 1885, and was elected to the Presi-
dency in his own right and began the
six years' term in March, 1892, when Jose
Maria Reina Barrior took office. Baril-
las retired to his coffee estates and even
took minor offices, setting an example
of disinterested patriotism. He has the
record of being the only President .in
Guatemala who did not endeavor to pro-
long his term of office.

CITY OH" MEXICO, May ;s._Tho Slfx-
ican Government was aware that for
some time past dissatisfaction with the
regime of President Cabrera was wide-
spread in Guatemala and that several
malcontents had gathered in the Mexican
'State of Chiapas. The Government
there required General Barrillas to move
to Tonala, some distance from the bor-
der in order to prevent violations of in-
General Barillas and General Castillo,
on crossing the line Sunday night, dis-
tributed a proclamation to th" inhabi-
tants of Guatemala. Among other things
the proclamation to the inhabitants re-
cites that the standard of 4revolt has
been raised at the two extremes of the
Republic against Cabrera, the most ca-
lamitous figure of our contemporaneous
history, who, having possessed himself
of the power by crime, has perpetuated
himself by a chain of crimes.
The proclamation continues:
"We desire, with the entire country,
radical reform of the Constitution of 1879
in order that it may fulfill the aspirations
of true liberals who are such by prin-
ciple and conviction, not of usurers who
don ihe Phrygian cap for lucre and who,
calling themselves the champions of law
an dliberty, pass their lives in open en-
mity with all liberty and law.
We desire that reform that guarantees
that the individual may no longer be at
the mercy of the first despot who has a
mind to trample on them so that crimi-
nal functionaries shall be made to an-
swer for their misdeeds so that there may
be no more savage torture, arbitrary im-
prisonment nor executions without trial
In Guatemala; so that justice may be
done to him who Is entitled thereto. Wo
desire a Legislature freely elected by the
people. We desire a change in the blun-
dering foreign policy of President Ca-
brera. We desire to cultivate with our
sister Republics cordial and truly frater-
"Instead of provoking by .disregard of
others' rights pecuniary claims on the
part 'of foreign Powers, our Government
should prove by the uprightness of its
acts and not pettifogging subterfuges
that the foreigner can live in our midst
in the same way as any other civilized
country, and that we do not deserve to
be classed in the matter of international
usage with the Barbary States.

in the administrative expenditure and
restoration of public credit through tin*

"We desire the re-establishment of sil-
ver as the basis of currency and the
abolition of the present disgraceful paper

AN INSIDIOUS FOE
Malaria Is an atmospheric poison which we unconsciously breathe Into
our lungs through the impure air arising from low, marshy places, stagnant
ponds, damp cellars, sewer pipes, improperly ventilated houses, decaying
vegetable matter, etc. Day after day these germs amd poisons are taken into
the lungs, and as the blood passes through them it becomes infected with the
poison and in its circulation distributes the microbes of disease to all parts
of the body. Malaria is a very insidious disease; it gives no warning of its
coming until the circulation is filled with the poison and this;foe to health
has the system at its mercy. The blood becomes polluted, thin and weak and
its slow, irregular circulation fails to properly nourish and strengthen the
body. Then the entire system is attacked, and if the germs andpoisonsof
Malaria are allowed to remain the strongest constitution will break down.
No one can feel well when the system is in a malarial condition; the vitality
is weak, the appetite poor, digestion deranged, the complexion grows
sallow and the entire body feels the effects of the poison. Malaria must be
removed from the system through the circulation and the only medicine that
can accomplish this is S. S. S. It not only cleanses the blood of all unhealthy,
morbid matter, but destroys the germs, cures Malaria and restores this vital
fluid to a strong, healthy condition. S. S. S.
is made of roots, herbs and barks combining
purifying and tonic properties which keep the
blood free of all poisons and the system in
1 perfect condition. While destroying the
PURELY VEGETABLE, S* fahma and building up the weak,
polluted blood S. S. S. gives tone and vigor
to the entire system. Dook on the blood and any medical advice without
